Until the end of November 2023 booking a train ticket in China wasn’t the easiest thing for foreigners.
We either had to buy the tickets on third party applications, or go to the train station to verify our identity and then use the official railway page 12306 APP or website.
Even after identification, however, I had some issues with 12306 as once or twice the system just didn’t recognize me anymore and I had to go back to the dedicated window to fix it…
But now, starting from 28 November, the railway department has launched an online identity verification service for foreign passports.
If you are visiting Nanjing you know that some of the most famous tourist landmarks are the city wall, the museums and the temples…. But there is one spot that I love and that is totally underrated: the great wall just outside Nanjing is the best place to visit if you want to experience both nature and architecture (I am not saying "history" as the wall is a recent construction).
It's been one year since I moved to China.
I had the opportunity to leave my Country (Italy) to teach abroad and I choose to come to Nanjing.
The Covid years were really hard for me and my husband, Italy was one of the places with more restrictions and mandates, day to day life was hell.... so we needed a fresh start.
China was not considered the best place at the time, epidemic measures were still enforced and we had no idea what the future would have been, but considered how bad we were feeling in our own Country we just made a bet, and won!
After some months life in China got back to normality, we could travel around both inside and outside mainland, and now we are enjoying a pretty good life.
I will do my best to talk about my new life here!
Even though in recent years I have been traveling with my husband or my friends, in the past I used to travel alone, and I loved it!
It all started when I was a kid and desperately wanted to visit London...
